: DANISH EUROPEAN CONCERT

Relayed from Copenhagen
SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA of THE DANISH STATE BROADCASTING
COMPANY
Conducted by GEORGE HEBERG Johann Peter Emilius Hartmann, who lived for the greater part of the nineteenth century, came of a distinguished family of musicians of German origin This family includes Johann's grand-father, his father, both of whom held important positions in Copenhagen, and his son, also of Copenhagen, who predeceased his father.
Johann Peter can claim the highest place in this family as a composer; he wrote several operas, one in particular, 'The Raven,' to words by Hans Andersen , but these were for the most part composed by him as a young man and are not now in the repertory. As long ago as 1840 he was made Director of the Copenhagen Conservatorium and he died sixty years later at the age of ninety-five.
Niels W. Gade, also a nineteenth century composer born in Copenhagen in 1817 is perhaps the best known of all the Danish composers. His style was in tune with that of Mendelssohn and of our own Sterndale Bennett. His music often has the charm of water-colour painting, but without excess of vigour or passion. In his day lie was immensely popular in a century that found pleasure in the suavity of Gade and his school.
Among later Danish composers Enna holds a high position. Certain of his music has been heard in England with pleasure, and some of it has kept its place in the repertory. The Aria to be sung tonight is from an opera produced in Copenhagen in 1892; it was a brilliant success, a success which was repeated with later operas in particular with ' The Little Match Seller,' after Hans Andersen 's story.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
